The Annotated Out Loud
Printed wrappers. Covers rubbed. A little soiled to tail-edge of text block. First annotated edition. Unpaginated. *** “Out Loud first appeared at the start of 1968, that great year.The collection carries the smell of that year. May its reappearance in 1976 coincide with another, stronger, more clear-eyed 1968 in which the people take all that is theirs and throw away their chains.” *** Third publication by the later ‘shadow poet laureate’ Adrian Mitchell (24 October 1932 – 20 December 2008). Dubbed the British Mayakovsky by Kenneth Tynan, Mitchell sits in a long line of activist poets. In a National Poetry Day poll in 2005 his poem “Human Beings” was voted the one most people would like to see launched into space.
